Sorry, if this seems minor, but I know that most of you know first hand the differences, why I cannot begin to understand. My 2 year old daughter was diagnosed last year and the Dr. prescribed BD syringes. With our insurance we pay $40 a box. This last weekend our local CVS pharmacy was out of the syringes, so they called across the street to Walgreen for us to go over there. When they got there the pharmacist asked us if we wanted the name brand or the Walgreen's generic brand. The generics only cost of $15 w/ our insurance. Yet, since I don't use them I am now worried that the generic isn't as sharp or good and it will hurt my daughter more. I am probably being silly, but I know that many of you on this site inject many time everyday like us and you would know whether it makes a difference.
On a side note, just to vent. I have asked at CVS where and how I could save money with all of our supplies and the guy told me to call my insurance who in turns tells me that unless I know the specific models, and types of supplies in which they would individually run in the computer then they can't tell me. Why didn't CVS just reccommend their brand syringe? UGH!
